A drone operator sitting in front of a video screen in New Mexico after he just bombed a target to oblivion
“Did we just kill a kid?” he asked the man sitting next to him.
“Yeah, I guess that was a kid,” the pilot replied.
“Was that a kid?” they wrote into a chat window on the monitor.
Then, someone they didn’t know answered, someone sitting in a military command center somewhere in the world who had observed their attack. “No. That was a dog,” the person wrote.
They reviewed the scene on video. A dog on two legs?
I have no words to express my frustration at reading this narration from a Drone Pilot sitting in New Mexico –
Mr Obama – TIME 2012 Person of the Year – please shed a tear for that DOG with TWO LEGS
